[DML] Re: Grinding into 2nd gear ... ?

I've fixed a couple of these now - it means that the car was driven too 
long with the original plastic clutch line. This causes shifting 
without completely disengaging the clutch. Result is that the first-
second gear sliding gear is getting worn (for some reason in my 
experience the sliding gear wears before the synchonizer but the syncro 
is probably chewed up too). Good news is that it probably won't get any 
worse if you have the braided clutch line, bad news is that it's an 
expensive and hard-to-get couple of parts that you need to fix it. Be 
on the lookout for an ebay trans. In the mean time shift slowly.
